Nutriphone is a smartphone based micronutrient testing system that utilizes camera phones to analyze blood results for Vitamin B12, D, cholesterol, and other health markers.
Individuals can apply their blood to a test strip that is inserted into a custom phone accessory. The Nutriphone application then utilizes the phone’s camera to capture an image of the test strip and analyzes that image to provide an accurate health marker.
We are exploring how individuals interpret different representations of their health data, cultural factors impacting use of the system, and the ways in which values and trust affect use of the system.
This project is a collaboration between the Interaction Design Lab, Cornell Mechanical Engineering and Nutritional Sciences, researchers at the University of Maryland, and industrial partners.
